He is looking for his third NBA ring and he is really being serious about it. He's done it in 2003, 2005 and now he wants to make it 3 titles in 5 years. Not bad. Not bad at all.
After a couple of very quiet games in the first two chapters of this series (in which he scored 14 points in total) Manu GINOBILI was unstoppable again for San Antonio Spurs as they edged the Phoenix Suns, 114 to 106 in Game 6, to win the Western Conference Semifinals series 4-2. The Argentine was Spurs' top-scorer with 33 points (4-7 from 3-point range). But he also contributed with 11 rebounds, 6 assists and 4 steals.
These are the average stats for Manu GINOBILI during the series against Phoenix:
17,8 points, 6,8 rebounds, 4,3 assists, 2,5 steals.
It was a pleasure to see so many Argentine flags and shirts amongst the San Antonio supporters, but it comes as no surprise as MANU is one of their favourite player.
Fabricio OBERTO played only 10 minutes as he was troubled after committing early personal fouls. He scored 2 points, grabbed 3 rebounds and gave 1 assist.
San Antonio Spurs will take on the Utah Jazz in the Conference Finals, while the East will be decided between DELFINO's Pistons and LeBron's Cavs.
